Quesnel sports fans played flag football in aid of Big Brothers Big Sisters Quesnel (BBBSQ) in late November at the Quesnel soccer complex.
Seven teams took to the indoor fields to battle for supremacy and raise funds for the charity.
The event was organized by Josh and Angele Nutley.
“Josh is an RCMP officer and a big brother. He wanted to give back. He loves football and thought it would be a good idea to bring it indoors this year,” says Angele.
Josh took care of the tournament structuring while Angele booked the fields, ran errands and spoke to local businesses to drum up donations and teams for the event.
“Josh and I are a great team,” Angele comments.
“We have been organizing events for the past three years. The indoor soccer field facility and staff were amazing to work with.”
Nutley says the event raised $535 for BBBSQ.
While all the teams ran good plays and had a ball, the winner of the tournament was team Runnin’ and Gunnin’, which employed the football prowess of Alan Fung, Nishan Khabra, Sergiu Stefanut, Brennan Dubord, Ian Van Leusden, Ben Staats, Aaron Drewcock and Matt Van Horne.
But the real winner was BBBSQ, with the extra funding for its worthy program.
